Natalie's Score: 89/100

A savoury and juicy cabernet sauvignon with aromas of fleshy black plums and blackberries. A full-bodied red wine that's smooth and imminently gulpable. Dark red in the glass, mouth-filling in the palate. Finishes with smoke and spice. Great with pizza.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: pizza, pasta, rare steaks.

Darlene Allison reviewed this wine as follows:

Let it breath. Drank with beef sliders
Terrific for such a bold red wine from Chile's Maipo Valley. Great depth and length in the glass and on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
